Bob Rivers – Minimum Wage lyrics

-Welcome to BurgerDoodle, can I have your order please?
-Oh yes. I'd like a Spiffy Burger with low fat cheese and an order of seasoned curly fries but only if they're cooked in virgin peanut oil.
-Ummm, $7.42 at the second window. Drive through please.

I work on a deep fryer, at a fast food chain
And my employers, Crack the whip and the chains
But what do I get, For my pay?
A couple dollars, is just pocket change

If I save my dough, For a month or so
I couldn't buy a can of coke, It's a joke!

Despite a measly raise, I am starvin' on minimum wage
Despite a measly raise, I am starvin' on minimum wage
I slave every day but I can't afford a date with a babe
Despite a measly raise, I am starvin' on minimum wage

I can't afford to have no fun
So I'm spitting on your toasted bun
I've made this one especially for you

-Yeah, I'll hold the pickle for ya, pal
-How about some special sauce, huh? Enjoy the lung butter
-There you go, sir, enjoy your burger!
